I discovered espelette pepper in the South of France. It is a delicious chilli from the Basque country that has a mild and smoky heat. It is really versatile. I add it to salad dressings, soups, stews, eggs or casseroles. You can find it here in specialty shops, but if you prefer smoked paprika or chilli powder also work well for this recipe.
This recipe calls for kale but you can easily substitute for spinach or cabbage depending on what you have available. Low in fat and high in fibre, lentils are a good source of iron and protein. What’s more they count as one of your five a day.
